A record-breaking £275,000 was raised for a hospice by those who took part in the annual Girls Night Out event.
Around 2,188 woman lit up the streets of Bury St Edmunds while wearing their pyjamas and flashing bunny ears in September last year.
The charity event raises money for St Nicholas Hospice Care, which provides care and support for those in west Suffolk and Thetford who have long-term and life-threatening illnesses.
“Every year I am truly shocked and humbled by the level of support Girls Night Out receives. Without our walkers, volunteers, supporters and sponsors the event would not have grown into the occasion it has.”
Girls Night Out will celebrate its 10th year on September 8.
